Gone with the wind

Have you ever felt just like you really wanted to disappear by gone with the wind? Why?

Our connection with life in this world somehow give us a circumstence where we just wish to cut it all without any single track left behind.

Life is so unique that every single of us ever share this common feeling. Even so, not many of us ever successed to find the answer 'why'. Or maybe there was no answer at all.

Virtue of life just didn't blown away with the wind, even so how it was happened, then still, wind is the part of our life, and we can not just disappear like that.

Have you stop loving this very life so you decide to gone with the wind? Then, I need to speak nothing more.

Knowing the world, is it useful?

One asked one self whether has some knowledges about the world would be useful for one self. In some field of life, like getting job, helping each other, having a trip, one tough that knowledges about the world would be useful.

But in many more aspect, maybe it is not that essential. Even you cultivated a lot of knowledges till this very moment, but if you can not understand your own self, then the knowledge seems as empty shell of the past.

We'll met a lot of circumstance that our limited knowledges won't be able to resolve it. Than what shall we do? Is there something else so essential in this life except than just knowledge?

Midnight

In my childhood, villagers love to talk about spooky things, like ghost, demon, and any mystical beings that said to be existed around our village.

Well, those stories can really scared me to death. I don't know, maybe I am a real coward from the begining. Even never met a single ghost in my whole life - except myself - but hearing that kind story would rise a spooky athmosphere around my thought.

But it was nice, since even I scare till today, when I was alone in the midnight, looking a the night sky with its stars and moon would made me in peace. Just take a deep breath, than everything would be just alright.

One Man Band

Pixar’s One Band Man was a quite interesting short animation – well, I would say I love almost all their short animation.

This movie let us understand that an unhealthy rivalry would cost a great lost for both sides. But if one can’t learn from this simple example – well, say it is hopeless then.

When the mind is crossing the cruelest storm field, it becomes a field of storm itself, and can bring about chaos even worst than the initial situation.

So you with that potential in front of you, would you still crossing the storm? While there is no guarante if the pool of stillness are beyond those cruel winds.

Wondering

I don’t know, or may be I am not so sure. But lately I find myself sometimes is wondering for something. Well, since I am not sure, its more likely a de’ javu around my consciousness. But poor me, my environment quite full of voice pollution right now, I can concentrate at this matter.

Maybe next time, but still, I am wondering – what I was wonder? Its so strange…

By Listening

Somehow we can’t pay attention to something fully, but the very source of the reasoning may comes from our self as well. Here is a short dialogue which revealed our own problem.

Q: Why is it so difficult to empty one's mind?

Krishnamurti : Now just listen to that question. Why is it so difficult to empty the mind? Listen to this. The speaker stated: meditation is the emptying of the mind of the activity of the self. You heard it. You have drawn a conclusion from it, saying, "How am I to do it?" - and in the very doing of it, it has become very difficult. So you ask the question, "Why is it so difficult to empty the mind?" That is, you haven't listened to the statement at all. You have drawn a conclusion from that statement saying, "I'd like to do that, but by Jove, how difficult it is" - you have understood? If you listen to it and not draw an abstraction from it, that is, "I must empty the mind", then "How am I to do it and how difficult it is", then you have an immense problem, you can't empty the mind, do what you will you can't empty it, because the desire to empty it is part of the activity of the self. But if you listen to it, listen to the statement, knowing you can't do a thing about it, just listen to it - look sirs, I listen to that aeroplane, listen to it. Listen to it without any resistance; listen to it saying, "I am trying to understand what he is talking about, how can I listen to that aeroplane, I want to listen to him" - you follow? Whereas if you just listen to that aeroplane without any resistance, then what takes place? You are just listening. There is no difficulty. But whereas if you listen to the statement that meditation is that, then you go into all kinds of tantrums, see all the difficulties, say, how can you do this living in this beastly world and so on and so on. Whereas if you listened totally and completely then that very act of listening has produced in the mind a movement which is not the activity of the self. And that movement operates in daily life without any difficulty.

Let it goes

Human feeling flows like stream of a river. Somewhere it appears so calm, and somewhere shows its other side.

We may not aware our own attachment to those feeling which bring about many things. Happiness, sadness, sorrow, anger and everything.

There is maybe a moment, a point which exist by its own nature. Where we'll let it goes.
